Can we not start the whole are the Rangers just a bunch of Paramilitary goons argument again
I'm pretty sure the last 3 or 4 threads hashed that out well (You missed at least one Captain Patch. It was a doozy).
One of the big differences in this game to say Fallout. Is that you don't wholly choose your role.
In Wasteland you are a Ranger. Which implies a certain degree of "structure"(for want of a better word) around you getting into and remaining in the Rangers.
So the core of this game is that you ARE a Ranger. So if something happens that results in you no longer being a Ranger, should the game continue. My preference in this case is no. BUT I am not advocating that you are prevented or forced into moral high ground everytime you play.
This game should be about give an take. Maybe you play as a group of "Get the job done, by fair means of foul guys". So you get wrapped over the knuckles but because you are succeeding you are given leeway. Maybe just enough leeway to hang yourself with.
Bah. My point is, managed intelligently, this sort of element of the game could be really interesting for some players, who might like pushing it to the limits, and walking a fine line.
*Shrug* Anyway at this stage I think the point was made and if the Devs have been reading this they'll probably go the path of least resisitance. As I have a feeling that a truly complex system for this may be more work than it is worth.
It's not too late. Make it Eight!
